Study: Medicaid Expansion Is Leading To Fewer Requests For Disability Benefits

"Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act could save the government money by causing fewer people to sign up for disability benefits, according to a new study from Indiana University’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs.

The research team found a 3-4 percent reduction in the number of people receiving supplemental security income — which benefits disabled people with lower incomes — in states that expanded Medicaid."

Please take this into consideration when considering "work requirements". Work requirements are a bad idea!
